delsins reissue arm once again looks to the revered back catalogue of lost trax for a second 12 that picks out the best of the anonymous collectives work. the ep features five cuts taken from two highly sought after eps released on tabernacle records in 2011 and 2012. the eye opens things up with punchy drum programming and the sort of sci-fi effects and synths that immediately take you to a future intergalactic world. its a weighty but emotional opener. while pulp is more twisted and urgent. with warped synth sounds and busy. bristling drums and perc all building pressure throughout. the forest resets the mood with mystic synths and mysterious atmospheres that mix ambient beauty with suggestive skeletal beats. b01 then canes through the cosmos on a detroit electro tip with slithers of synth. swollen pads and crisp hits and dominion rounds things out in hurried fashion. the restless electro drums pound away as prickly snares and cymbals. blurts of machine noise and sweeping pads all wrestle for attention and keep you on your toes. this is high octane electro and techno designed with metallic precision but oozing plenty of human feelings.

the saqqara ep is a multilayered. sonic canvas from the mind of chris barratt. as he launches his new alias. baratt. for life and death. fine brushstrokes move from all areas of his musical hideout. spreading over five. varied. aural sculptures. each one warping and weaving on its own cosmic trajectory. pooling from key aspects of his eagles & butterflies project. barratt induces new musical shades. hinting at moments of disco and funk. through a lens of psychedelia. the title track is a late-night floor-filler - a bold yet uniquely personal necropolis built from riveting delays and arpeggiators. time bending sees dj tennis join in. stepping up with his trademark. rough around the edges production aesthetic. en route to unknown destinations. barratt hones-in on a confident. stripped-down style on khaos - rhythm versus melody just in time for festival season. 1983 soundtracks a ride to utopia on a rocket-fueled vespa. leading to collider. the land of un-quantised madness. where the most treasured of synthesisers live amongst their drum machine counterparts. flowing yet incredibly interconnected. saqqara is best interpreted as a mini artist album - the first of many barratt offerings.
